CONCERT VIDEO OF GRANTRÆET UPLOADED - DECEMBER 28 2023

As a little treat on my birthday I have uploaded a live video from our concert series during HCA Festivals earlier this year. The song is a musical interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen's melancholic tale, The Fir Tree, which in many ways is a story about the passing of time; rather fitting for a birthday, I suppose. Thanks of course to my on-stage team of Olivia Obskur (extra vocals, synth), Alex Anarki (synth) and Max Kaos (hologram graphics) plus Penelope Ramon creating screen drawings as well as Claus Corona handling live sound - and to the many people who attended the concerts. The video can be found in the Video Section of this site and also on YouTube right here.

I have uploaded two live videos from our Halloween concert at Klub Golem earlier this year; Zombiesjæler, a song about zombies and maybe also about racism, plus my personal rendition of the opening theme from Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells in celebration of the fifty years anniversary of the album and the use of the famous opening theme in horror movie, The Exorcist. Thanks to the onstage team of Olivia Obskur (extra vocals, synth), Alex Anarki (synth) and Max Kaos (hologram graphics) as well as Claus Corona handling live sound and Eddike handling lights. The videos can be found in the Video Section of this site and also on YouTube: Zombiesjæler and Tubular Bells.

MONOCHROME TALES ON ZZAP!64 COVERDISK - OCTOBER 02 2023

During the Corona years when concert activity was limited I spent nights programming three graphical text adventure games for the Commodore 64 for which I also composed music which SidWave helped track for the 64; the main theme can be found in the Music Section of my website. The games are now released on the cover disk of classic Commodore 64 magazine, Zzap!64. This was the leading Commodore 64 mag in the eighties and now they're back. If you want to support them or buy issues you can do so right here. Monochrome Tales is a collection of three graphic adventure games for the Commodore 64. The games share an overall approach in style and design - a use of black and white graphics throughout hence the title - but with different stories that are not connected. The games were all programmed on an SX64 using the GAC tool, primarily at night. The games are Dream Loop, Space Punk and Eighties Quest. Dream Loop is a strange tale in black and white, referencing Edgar Allan Poe's famous notion of a dream within a dream. The player is lost in reveries and must explore the dream world, solving puzzles of an often dream-like and surreal character, navigating strange corridors, snowy landscapes and dark forests. Space Punk will let you tour the galaxies with your space punk band, Alien Anarchy and play The Dying Star Club on Neubauten Minor, Purple Meteor Club on Lydon 56 in the Vivienne System and abandoned space station, Hagen DDR. Travel from planet to planet in your battered old UFO van, operate cockpit computer HAL64 and avoid the Space Cops. Eighties Quest - Ah, teenage life in the eighties! Visit high school or stay at home and play your Commodore 64. Hang out with the local goth girl or visit the comics store. Where did you put that favourite Depeche Mode tape of yours and how to beat the Pac Man hi-score at the arcade? It is all, as the saying goes, in a day's work in the eighties.

TWICE A SCREEN REMOVED VIDEO ONLINE - SEPTEMBER 19 2023

I decided to do a music video for an older song of mine, Twice A Screen Removed. The song deals thematically with the melancholy of internet communication, of always being twice a screen removed, but also has a darker undertone of online stalker mentality. This was the angle I went with for the video which, in a strange way, is inspired by the Julien Temple-directed video for Dexys Midnight Runners' classic eighties hit, Come On Eileen, a song I always loved. Now, I know the video is meant to be all fun and I am in no way offended but let's face it, Kevin Rowland's character is being kind of a prick to Eileen with his persistent calls of 'Come on, Eileen.' This made me think of how, in rock and pop music, we have accepted, unquestioning, for years and years, this idea of male longing for female object of desire - with often very little thought of whether or not said female object of desire is actually the least bit interested. This is the main idea behind my Twice A Screen Removed video which is a slightly surreal depiction of screen-to-screen communication, walking around with screens in something which looks like a silent movie of the German expressionism era, a (not so?) subtle way of hinting at how certain thoughts and ideas within pop, rock and music video language are perhaps a tad dated by now. The video can be found in the Video Section on this site as well as on YouTube. The roles are played by Marie Makaber and yours truly.

RUNNING UP THAT HILL LIVE VIDEO ONLINE - JULY 30 2023

Seeing how one of my all-time music heroes turns 65 today, I have uploaded a live video of our encore from Klub Golem Halloween 2022. The event had Stranger Things theme so we chose to perform a rendition of the classic Kate Bush smash hit, Running Up That Hill, the song being famously featured in season four of the popular TV series. Olivia Obskur does the lead vocals on this one, Max Kaos provides live hologram graphics while Emmelie Eddike and myself handle synthesizers, me adding a bit of extra vocals as well. Claus Corona is responsible for the live sound. When watching the video and Obskur's wonderful performance you will be surprised to learn she actually had something like a panic attack on stage right before this song which I found fitting in an almost uncanny way given Running Up That Hill in Stranger Things is a song used as protection against a demonic entity who preys on people with a history of mental disorders. We may look confident up on stage but really it is a bit like walking a tightrope every time. So once again, thank you for attending the concerts out there. You can find the video on YouTube as well as in the Video Section of this site where you can also find the studio version of the song - which would be in the Music Section, of course.

DJ SUe She will provide atmospheric music before, between and after the shows. Claus Corona will be handling the live sound.
